My family loves this simple, quick, go-to taco recipe. The Boca Crumbles are a nutritious source of protein that reduces your risk of heart disease and cancer and is a great way to eat less meat during your busy week. The spinach is rich in antioxidants, the tomatoes reduce middle-aged women’s risk of heart disease, and the salsa reduces inflammation in the body. Grab your family members and make this meal in 15 minutes. You will laugh, talk, and have fun putting this together—we still do. Tacos in 15 minutes!
I bag Boca Crumbles
1 chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, or 1 tsp. of chopped garlic in a jar
(Optional: we chop a red pepper up to add more antioxidants)
2 tsp. olive oil
1/4-1/2 cup water (Boca has no fat and you need water to keep it moist)
1 Old El Paso Taco Seasoning Packet
2 cups of fresh spinach
1 cup chopped tomatoes
1 ½ cups of shredded cheddar cheese
Box of soft and/or hard shell tacos (my family loves both)
1 jar of your favorite salsa (we love fresh Green Mountain Gringo)
- In a skillet, add olive oil and then add the Boca crumbles, chopped onion, garlic, taco seasoning packet, and water. If you choose to use red peppers, add this at this stage as well.
- While this is cooking for 10 minutes, chop the tomatoes and shred the cheddar cheese (or use a bag of shredded cheddar cheese).
- Place the cheese, tomatoes, and spinach in separate pretty bowls. I warm the taco shells in the microwave for a few seconds and place them on a plate. Place all of this beautiful, nutritious food on your counter with your dinner plates beside them. Each family member takes their taco shell and puts the amount of Boca they like into their taco shell. Then decorate your taco with as much spinach, tomatoes, cheese, and salsa as you like.
This is a yummy meal. Your family has a great nutritious, low-fat, fun, family meal. We make this every two weeks and sometimes substitute the Boca crumbles with fish or substitute chicken.
